Kioa Islands are freehold islands populated by South Sea Islanders. In 2005 Fiji granted them full citizenship. Kioa Island was settled by the people of Tuvalu Island (also called Ellice Island) after they were displaced by rising sea levels.

As we complete our circumnavigation, we bid farewell to Vanua Levu and make the journey across Bligh Water. This body of water is named after Captain Bligh of Mutiny in the Bounty fame. Bligh, through courage and excellent seamanship -and arguable a return of hisgood char-acter and leadership qualities -successfully managed to navigate from Tofua, through Fiji to the Dutch East Indies on a 7 metreopen launch. A harrowing journey over 47 days. Our final destination is Nananu-i-ra off the north coast of Viti Levu for our customary swim, snorkel and beach activities.
